Personal Flotation Devices

Australis stock the Ultra range of Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) - often called Life Jackets.
These quality PFDs are all designed for paddling and are available in a range of styles and sizes, with various features to suit different paddling situations.

An inflatable PFD is also available.

Please note, from 1 November 2010, it will be compulsory to wear a PFD when kayaking for:

  • All children under the age of 12
  • All occupants of a canoe or kayak on enclosed waters and more than 100m from the shore
  • All occupants of a canoe or kayak on the open ocean, alpine waters and white waters

These new requirements apply to all NSW navigable waters including estuaries, rivers, lakes, dams and ocean waters.

Find out more on the NSW Maritime website about Requirements for PFDs.
